Today’s tutorial is from www.thehybridchick.com, who has created the gorgeous "Puffy Flowers" shown above. The flowers are a great way to decorate an event, to spruce up a favour/bomboniere box, or to decorate a gift for someone special - perfect timing for Mother's Day!
- Paper Piercer
- Scallop Punch or Circle Punch
Step One: Punch ten (10) scalloped circles from the patterned paper of your choice.
Step Two: Crinkle each scalloped circle until they are tightly packed.
Step Three: Unfold each scalloped circle.
Step Four: Stack each circle on top of each other, then pierce the center with a paper piercer. Be sure to pierce all the way through the bottom of the circle stack.
Step Five: Stick a brad through each layer, and secure the brad of the bottom.
Step Six: Fold each layer up tightly one layer at a time. Be sure to get the first layer super-tight as seen below.
Step Seven: Continue folding the layers until they look like this. Then starting with the bottom circle, unfold each layer loosely to create your flower blossom.
When you are finished with your flower, adhere to your project. In my case, I put it on top of my clover box. Cute, huh?
